Chrysler Launch Event

Location: Staples Center

Service: Conferences, Conventions, & Trade Shows

Guests: 400

Client's Need:

The client needed to unveil the new line of SRT (Street and Racing Technology) cars at the L.A. Autoshow. They wanted an event close to Staples Center so it was an easy walk for the guests. It was important to Chrysler that their SRT brand was understood by the attendees.

Our solution:

We rented the parking lot across the street and installed a huge tent.  We designed stages with cars, lounges, seating for the presentation and all the ballyhoo with lighting to set the stage for the CEO to introduce their new line. To create the right ambience we enlisted a famous female DJ that spun mellow grooves until the party ended.
 

The Outcome:

The attendance was high and guests were very impressed with the vehicles and the event. The client appreciated that we were able to see the big picture and handle all the elements needed for a flawless event. The press on the new cars was tremendous.

Client's Need:

Exhibit at the premier hospitality industry trade show. Stand out among the other meeting and event companies as a top supplier. Showcase new technologies to show that they are on the cutting edge and draw attendees into the booth. The booth needed to express the brand through sleek lines, white leather and custom furnishings. This was our third consecutive year helping Host Group plan for this trade show. 

Our Solution:

We partnered with our AV supplier, American Audio Visual Company, to create never before seen technologies. The first year we designed a 10’ tall x 4’ diameter LED column using a new technology “paper LED”. The second year we showcased Microtiles. The next year we utilized a very short-throw projector and projection screen fabric that we printed on to showcase promo videos. We designed custom couches, chairs and pedestals for the booth.
 

The Outcome:

The client had incredible booth traffic and generated three times the anticipated leads. The LED column was the hit of the entire show. Over 1,000 attendees stopped at the booth to take pictures and videos of this new technology. Even AV experts came by to see how we did a video projection with only 18” behind the screen. This turned into a multi-year program.

Tizen (Intel and Samsung)

Location: Hyatt Regency / California Academy of Science

Service: Conferences, Conventions, & Trade Shows

Guests: 600

Client’s Need:

The client needed assistance with logistics, staffing and transportation for the company’s annual Developers Conference, and to have a party that would “out-do last year’s” (another California Host success). 

Our Solution:

After multiple venue proposals and site visits, the client chose the California Academy of Science in Golden Gate Park. This one-of-a-kind venue offered a living green room, an aquarium, a planetarium, a rain forest, and so much more! We incorporated a “Streets of San Francisco” food theme by setting up many impressive food stations, including a sushi bar, raw bar, Dim Sum station, and tapas station. We also filled the entire African Hall with just about every type of dessert imaginable!
 

The Outcome:

We provided executive transfers, as well as conference support staff and a fantastic evening event. The client was very pleased with our support staff, transportation services, venue selection, and all aspects of the event. We are currently scouting locations for the same event next year.

Samsung Developer Conference (Venueworld)

Location: Hyatt Regency / California Academy of Science

Service: Conferences, Conventions, & Trade Shows

Guests: 600

Client's Need:

Hold the first Samsung Developer Conference to bring in the top developers for their mobile products. They wanted the conference to fit their mobile brand and create a buzz about the conference for the next year. 
 

Our Solution:

We selected The Westin St. Francis for the conference headquarters. The hotel had many unique meeting spaces and we were able to create the general session, Android Live room, hacker's lounge and over 15 breakouts. We custom designed menus for this energetic group so they could have a tasty lunch while not missing the important content of the breakouts. The Exploratorium was selected as the off site venue. Damon Wayans spoke to the developers about the importance of the work they were doing. 
 

The Outcome:

The conference was a big success and the next year's conference had the push it needed in the developer world. The high tech guests loved the interactive exhibits, DJ and food. There were so many things to do that many guests stayed to the very end.
